I never understood the appeal of Derek Jeter...that is, until I met him. I was blown away by how charming and engaging he is. He makes eye contact, and he listens when you speak. He's tall and athletic and dreamy. The fact that he has two fragrances -- Avon Derek Jeter Driven and the new, more intense version Driven Black -- makes perfect sense. What man wouldn't want to smell like Derek Jeter? (I considered dousing my husband in the scent after the launch event.)
Standing in front of a room full of beauty editors, Jeter smiled while answering questions and telling endearing personal stories.

We don't know how she has the time (between hosting "Project Runway" and "Germany's Next Top Model," raising a family, and designing her clothing line with New Balance), but Heidi Klum has taken on the role of spokeswoman for the new-to-the-US hair care line Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy.

The six shampoos and five conditioners (for a range of hair types) are available at the drugstore for around $5.99. All of the products focus on improving the health of your scalp, since a healthy scalp equals healthier hair.

Can't afford to splurge on a pair of Christian Louboutin heels? We can definitely relate. But the good news is you may be able to snag a piece of the high-end brand come 2013. That's because the Paris-based shoe designer is venturing into the world of beauty. "Beauty products also have to do with empowering women," Louboutin explained to WWD about his new cosmetics company. "That's very much the job of the shoes I'm designing."
While the line will be luxurious and "mirror the quality of the shoes, of the bags, of all the DNA of the brand," Louboutin said, we imagine the price will be far less than a pair of his signature red soles. So what can we expect from his new brand, Christian Louboutin Beaute? It's fitting that after creating his iconic style by painting lacquer along the… See more »
